Publix raises over $28,000

March 28, 2014 in general, news from us



The amazing folks at PUBLIX made a visit to the Center this week to donate a check for over $28,000! The revenue comes from the Children's Cancer Center Holiday Cards and annual Calendar program – the products of which have retailed at over 105 PUBLIX Super Markets for nearly three decades of holiday seasons.

The annual campaign is not only one of our most traditional, it is also one of the keystones of the CCC annual fundraising budget and we couldn't reach our goal without their help!

The PUBLIX stores' generous giving back policy means that each super market sells our Holiday Cards and Calendar without deducting any percentage whatsoever for their efforts…the Children's Cancer Center retains 100%. Which means that the price you pay for your cards is the amount of money we receive as a donation!

Thank you PUBLIX! Now that's shopping with pleasure!

Gracias Taco Bell!

Taco Bell donates $7000 worth of meals to families of the Children's Cancer Center

What's better than a yummy meal at Taco Bell? How about 1800 of them!

The wonderful people at the Tampa Taco Bell Owners Association surprised us this week with nearly two thousand vouchers for complete combo meals valid at Taco Bells across Tampa Bay.

For a local family battling childhood cancer or chronic childhood blood disorders, treatment can be an all-consuming part of life, not only for the child battling illness, but for the entire family.

"Everything else takes a backseat," says Danielle Lanier, Director of Programs and Family Services at the Children's Cancer Center. "Soccer practice, band camp, you name it, these all become a secondary priority as a family stretches both time and finances to give their child every opportunity to get better. So helping them with quick, easy and free meals on the go can become a lifesaver. Literally."

We are very grateful to the owners and franchisees of local Taco Bells as well as Kalen Mickey and Kristen Bankosz of Landers and Partners for making life just a little easier for our families.

Please support the local businesses who care about our families. Make your way to a Taco Bell and be sure to say, "Yo quiero Taco Bell!"
